Ed's Macro-Economic View

Alex Cobham of the Tax Justice Network discusses the EU Commission's plans to clamp down on tax avoidance
Investment Perspectives: In the wake of the Panama Papers revelations, The European Commission recently announced it would be taking steps to increase tax transparency, and crack down on off-shore havens. Under new proposals revealed on April 12th, the Commission will be putting forward legislation, requiring firms operating in Europe with sales of over £600m to publish details of how much they earn and how much tax they pay on a country-by-country basis. To offer his analysis of the proposals, Ed Mitchell from Investment Perspectives is joined by Alex Cobham, Director of Research at the Tax Justice Network.

Crowdfunders: Pink gin, better due diligence for crowdfunding and tax!
This is Crowdfunders on Share Radio, the show that covers the fast-growing world of alternative finance, hosted by Share Radio’s Senior Analyst, Ed Bowsher. In today's show, Ed speaks to the founder of a company that's making pink gin using raspberries. The gin is called Pinkster and you can invest in the company on the Growthdeck platform. Also in the spotlight is an equity crowdfunding campaign for a company that is now in administration. The company is called Rebus, and the question is: did this crowdfunding campaign give investors all the relevant information? And over in the world of peer to peer lending, today's crowdfunders takes a look at the issue of tax. It's especially topical now that the innovative finance isa has been launched - it's supposed to protect any interest you earn on peer to peer sites from income tax.

Crowdfunders: A new innovative finance ISA, Abundance and Thincats platforms & a profile on LendInvest
This is Crowdfunders on Share Radio, the show that covers the fast-growing world of alternative finance, hosted by Share Radio’s Senior Analyst, Ed Bowsher. In today's show: A new innovative finance ISA that is launching this week, and Ed talks to the bosses of the Abundance and Thincats platforms. We also have a 'platform profile' on Lendinvest. Starting with the innovative finance isa - the idea is that you can lend money on the well-known peer to peer platforms - people like Zopa and Ratesetter - and you won't have to pay any income tax on the interest you earn. Trouble is, the isa is launching this week, but loans on the big platforms aren't eligible for an isa. So to find out more, Ed spoke yesterday to a real alternative finance expert, Bruce Davis, who's been on Share Radio many times. He also runs the Abundance platform. He started by asking Bruce: 'why on earth aren't most platforms eligible for the ISA, what's going on?'
